trip to Dallas was wild yesterday. one of our back side windows somehow shattered leaving a gaping whole in the side of our van... and then in the middle of a massive downpour 22miles outside of Dallas our back left tire blew... led to some an awesome team building experience as we dealt with gnarly conditions and a van half off the freeway... but the 6 of us managed to get the tire changed and get us off to the 6th Anniversary bash at the Granada Theater in Dallas. which was incredible. local openers Telegraph Canyon were really sweet and BTS ripped and were in great spirits. packed house. fun fun night. afterwards we had a late night pool party at our new friends' Ethan and Micah's apartment complex. pool party!! epic on all fronts.
excited for the Colorado shows with BTS over the weekend. then home. been an incredible trip. lots of photos and videos to come thanks to our embedded photo artist and vibe guy Tyler Kohlhoff. i'm sure we'll post some here and on our sites, but you can embed yourself in his magic via his blog DANCING WILL SAVE YOU
here are some sneak peaks. found this video posted online today from Sunday's show at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC. really really fun show. incredible place. this is Battle and some of Dali
and this Atlanta photographer posted some shots from monday's show at the Buckhead Theatre
been a super fun power trip thus far. just a few more days left. also big thanks to the rest of our crew on this stretch:
the infamous Jeremy Martin is pretty much running the show. brought along to mix sound, he's pretty much been an all-star on several fronts. especially with the ladies. but what else is new?
and the aforementioned Tyler Kohlhoff. quite the crew. go team!
also, if it wasn't incredibly obvious, it's been super hot. last night in Dallas i was soaked to the bone after our set. luckily the A/C in our van works great for the driving. our bubble is nice.
more updates and lots of photos soon.
